I’ve already discussed Shakeology as part of the 21 Day Fix meal plan, and I’ve also elaborated on the versatility (including flavors) of this staple in Beachbody nutrition plans. Here is a quick Shakeology Review and how to use it in your meal plan beyond a workout necessity.
First and foremost, Shakeology is a hybrid of a protein shake and a meal replacement shake.
It’s filled with superfoods, proteins, vitamins, probiotics, and digestive enzymes to name a few things. Honestly, the list is long but comprehensive. Trust me; you’re getting what you need from this shake.
However, because it is a cross between the two types of shakes, it is not designed to be solely one or the other. Shakeology is best used as a supplement to a diet that is nutritionally balanced and appropriate for your weight.
A busy lifestyle can lead to a diet that is less than optimal. Whether your profession requires demanding hours, or you are Mom’s Taxi Service (and God bless you if it’s both!), grabbing snacks becomes part of the routine. If you have littles, those snacks often turn into whatever they don’t finish, right?
Shakeology provides an alternative to the grazing and snacking that can occur. Blend one up to drink in the car while you wait for soccer practice to be over. There are so many great flavors that you won’t be tempted to stop at a Starbucks drive-thru for a calorie-laden Frappuccino.
Many people are skeptical about Shakeology at first, but it has produced amazing results over the years. Devotees love the variety of flavors and the versatility of the powder itself. You can make shakes, smoothies, and even desserts with Shakeology. It satisfies a sweet tooth nutritionally.
People also love that it can curb hunger, which is great to combat that “in between meals snacking” that can wreck a diet. They also love the idea of being able to get a multitude of benefits from something that tastes great, instead of the sawdust-flavored products of some other diets.
Shakeology reviews are generally positive, although you will always have people who don’t like it for one reason or another. Sometimes, they don’t follow the directions correctly, so they do not see the proper results (user error is a terrible thing!) Those who understand how and when to use Shakeology love the product. When combined with an exercise plan, and some dedication, it really can’t be beaten.
I found a great site that has a ton of Shakeology Reviews for you to view for yourself.
I would love to hear your own Shakeology Review as it relates to your own experience. Please Comment Below and let me hear your voice.
My name is Melissa McAllister. I just turned 44! I have a son and daughter and my husband and I are new empty nesters! My husband is the reason I eat, drink, and sleep health and fitness. He has 2 speeds, GO and GO Faster. We have been together for over 28 years and married for 23 (yes, he had me at “hello!”). Don’t get me wrong though…I was a Doritos and Coca Cola eating Hoover when I was in school! Fitness has been an essential part of my life for over 19 years. I have the 3 best jobs in the world—being a stay-at-home Mom, business owner, and group exercise instructor for several large fitness chains. I have been teaching everything from yoga to kickboxing for over 17 years. I have also had the great opportunity to train, inspire, and motivate other instructors for the past 11 years. You might even see me in a few fitness videos out there! 😉 Reaching out to others who are struggling to be healthy and happy is my passion. I couldn’t tell you next Fall’s latest fashion must have or what flowers to plant this season, but I can help you achieve your health and fitness goals. With your determination and my motivation, we can find and keep the best YOU! I will inspire by holding myself and those around me accountable!
